News and Information on Birding Sites Throughout Thailand and the Andaman

The final week of the Raptor Watch Festival draws to a close, but like Dr. Rob mentions, in many ways it's just the beginning.

The final week of October expires with sightings of Amur Falcon and Besra and a shift in the wind sends masses of raptors heading towards Phuket.

Amur Falcon, Black Baza, Booted Eagle. Steppe Buzzard ... all this and more news coming from Pencil Hill.

Updated raptor migration news from Dr. Bob DiCandido and Mr. Chukiat Nualsri at Pencil Hill in Chumporn.

More rain is expected but the migration continues with the numbers picking up steadly with each passing day.

The first Oriental Honey Buzzards have now arrived and the migration is raking in a few new surprises.

Week three saw an increase in passerines, including a first-year Japanese Sparrowhawk on its maiden migration.

Dr. Robert DiCandido's diary of the raptor watch goes into its second week with mostly smaller raptors reported on migration.
